Chelsea rocked as Real Madrid star rules out summer transfer

Chelsea rocked as Real Madrid star rules out summer transfer

With the win, Real maintained the top spot in the table, inching closer towards lifting the trophy.

They lead Bayern Munich 2-1 in their Champions League quarter-final ahead of Tuesday night's second leg in Madrid.

"I'm happy, more than anything because we played well from the first to the last minute".

Barcelona hosts Real Sociedad on Saturday, its first match since losing at Juventus 3-0 in the Champions League this week.

The team managed by Zidane didn't play their best game, but finally they won with and incredible Isco, who scored two brilliant goals.

Real Madrid midfielder, Isco Alarcon, has hinted that he could sign a new deal to stay at the club, after his two-goal heroics against Sporting Gijon on Saturday.

The former Malaga man got himself on the scoresheet twice, gabbing the first and last goals of Real's afternoon, with his opener being something of a joy to watch as he slalomed through the Gijon defence easily before tucking away an unstoppable shot from inside the box. They need to start winning soon if they're going to avoid the drop, but getting points off Real may be too big of an ask.

Alvaro Morata netted Madrid's second equaliser to cancel out Mikel Vesga's early second-half header and, just when it looked like the leaders were set to leave the door ajar in the title race, Isco lashed a rasping low shot from the edge of the box beyond Ivan Cuellar's despairing dive.

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to reach 100 European goals with a brace in Munich, and Zidane added: "We have to be pleased that he says he'll be firing on all cylinders until the end of the season". His second goal just after half time showed another part of his game, as he met a curling Nico Gaitan cross to power in a back post header.

Isco has reiterated his desire to stay at Real Madrid "for many years", after being hailed by manager Zinedine Zidane.

Isco received Lucas Vazquez's pass inside a crowded penalty area but somehow dribbled past two Sporting defenders before curling the ball into the top corner.

"Of course, Mats is very important, but we have a few other options who could fill in in his position", Lahm said ahead of the game at the Santiago Bernabeu. "He has shown with his performance that he is a great player".

When Real Madrid scored the third goal he played as a full back. The win ended a terrible week which saw Barca lose 2-0 in Malaga and 3-0 away to Juventus, but even the three points couldn't disguise the feeling of decline.
